    Brew Crew he's only asking you to pay him for postage not the DVD and that is about right for shipping a CD. That's pretty nice of him to give those away like that.

    except that a single disc can be sent media mail for under $1, and anyone paying $5 for blanks is a poor shopper...

    Right, if you do the math....

    Blank DVD $0.50 (generous)
    Bubble envelope $0.50 (generous)
    Postage $0.60 (within the lower 48)

    Additional costs for a label and ink (if used) as well as a sleeve for the disc. If the offer includes a DVD case and full color artwork, that adds up as well.

    So, if the item is stripped down, it's overpriced. If it comes with a case and color artwork, it looks like a pretty good deal.

    That's obvious. Don't buy. The stuff is available for "free" in various places like jamtothis.com and vhtrading.com....

    For people that don't own a DVD burner, can't afford to buy a DVD burner, the $25 a pack blank DVDs etc. paying $5.25 for someone to mail them one is cheap to those of you who can afford to buy a internal burner or external burner.

    I just bought an external burner for my laptop and for me it wasn't all that much. I got one on sale for $90. But that's a lot of money for some people.

    Now I have to go learn the ins and outs of learning about jamtothis. Plus there's the fact I only have two DVDs to start with of my own to offer. Not to mention I'm sure you guys probably have both of them already. And that's not much to offer to start with. I think sometimes you folks that have been into this for a while forget that people that want to get into trading have to start somewhere. Someone like is a valid option for a beginer until they can get their owner burner. And he isn't selling them for the $15 or $20 that a lot of people are out there.

    That doesn't mean that selling isn't wrong, no matter what the price. Now if this person was truely only asking for costs, that would be one thing, but there are several bucks of profit worked into that $5.25. This person won't get rich selling discs at this price though.

    Questions to ask the seller before you send money:

    1) Is this the complete show?
    2) Is the disc PC or SA authored?
    3) If it's PC authored, who did it?
    4) Does it come with case and artwork?

    See someone who doesn't know anything about this stuff would have no idea to ask this stuff. See this is the stuff I will sit and read a whole lot about in jamtoit before I even think of offering anything I have. I have no earthly idea how to answer any of these questions regarding the CD boots I have.

    The two DVDs I have when they come up have some stuff on them so I assume that will be the type of stuff that you are asking about correct? I would need to write all that down as my answers correct? So much to learn when you are green. I don't want to piss anyone off or misslead/cheat them. But if I do something wrong it would be out of ignorance, not because of wanting to cheat someone. I've noticed that a lot of people have been burned by others and naturally jump when some dumbie like me comes along and does something out of ignornace. Just reading all that you guys have out there isn't always enough. Sometimes you need someone to help the greenhorns ya know, be patient with the dumbies that are technically challenged.

    You should have left the "giving away" part out. Usually when you give something away you ask for nothing in return. As far as special offer goes, i think you're overpriced as well.

    As ron said:

    Blank DVD $0.50 (generous) + Bubble envelope $0.50 (generous) + Postage $0.60 (within the lower 48) = $1.60
